Russian fried potatoes with mushrooms and dill are a staple in Eastern European cooking.



For the Vegetables

  • About 4 tablespoons avocado, canola, or refined coconut oil, divided
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 3 large or 4 medium potatoes), peeled and cut into 1/3-inch-thick half-moons
  • 1 small or 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and quartered
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon minced dill

For the Sauce

  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • About 1 tablespoon hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon or brown mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika



  1. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the potatoes and cover tightly with a lid (See Note). Cook until the potatoes are starting to soften, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove the lid, add the onion, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Raise the heat to medium and cook until the potatoes are cooked through and crispy in places, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of a separate large skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms with 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook until they’re browned, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Turn the heat off and stir in the garlic.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce by stirring all the ingredients together. Feel free to adjust the proportions to your taste.
  5. Transfer the potatoes to a serving platter, top with the mushrooms, and garnish with dill. Serve hot.


If you don’t have a tight-fitting lid, cover the skillet with a baking sheet instead.
